Park safety

Wollaton Park is a large park home to a variety of wildlife including, two herds of wild deer, 90 Red and 120 Fallow. We advise to not approach, touch or feed the deer as they can be dangerous. Please be aware of seasonal activity, such as deer rutting (September – November), calving (March – May) and times of the year when invertebrates may sting or bite in open spaces, such as wasps, ticks and horse-flies.

For safety we recommend to keep aware of surrounding nature, remain close to paths, avoid long grassy areas and keep dogs under control, using a lead when close to wildlife. Owners of dogs worrying the deer will receive a fine of up to £1,000.

Fires and barbecues are not allowed due to the site being a conservation area.
